Stress is said to be one of the most prevalent and widespread problems in modern societies. Children start feeling pressures from school and families early in life, and even retired people feel the burden of sustaining their standards of living. This view of stress, however, does not say it all about how stress in human beings. Stress is also a strong survival and evolutionary mechanism, hence the key thought is how to manage stress, and to make sure that one lives life with the minimum level of dysfunctional stress, and the maximum level of wellbeing. This presentation offers a brief journey through stress and wellbeing, with the aim of changing common and often incorrect or incomplete views of these concepts.
